Alright, so i started playing TDU Platinum just a few days ago and so far i love it
But i have a question
Where can i get the BMW E31?
I cant seem to find it in any of the dealerships shown to have BMWs and it occured to me the vanilla game may not have enough dealer space to fit all the hundreads of cars, so now im wondering about that

It's around at the yellow circle (couldn't paste my ss for some reason so I used a random map from the net). It's a "bike" dealer though, you have to find all the car dealers first to visit there.

I dont know what it is, but I have had a real motherfucker of a time trying to get TDU platinum to stay running. It installs fine and then it works. But for some reason for no particular cause it just stops working. It will boot up and show the TDU logo very darkly on all my screens. Then just refuse to start up. No matter what I do I cannot get the game to start consistently anymore.

I have removed d3d9.dll and started the game with both the regular exe and project paradise.

I have the crack to avoid the DRM

I have removed enbseries

I have installed patch 1.12

I have run in compatibility mode.( from xp to windows 8 )

I have run as windows

I have run as windows with settings unlocked.

I have installed the game on a different drive

I have run the game off of a flash drive

I have run it in 640x480 in settings in the properties tab.

installed a generation earlier of drivers ( Adrenalin 21.4.1 Recommended (WHQL )

 

For some reason, after a few months. The game just refuses to start up no matter what. 

 

i currently have it deleted and cleaned the registry, but under no circumstance did it ever turn back on. Someone help me, I refuse to belive this game became self aware and just headed out to lunch.

I have seen this too. I guess i am not alone, try search engine, here or google like [email protected] screen TDU1, [email protected] startup screen TDU1 etc.

In this tdu1 setup tutorial (which i suggest) is mentioned following issue (i am not sure if it is the same, looks similar):

Quote

- game black screen in project paradise, not without it - Go to testdriveunlimited.exe properties -> select compatibility tab -> change settings for all users -> change high dpi settings -> check both "Use this setting to fix scaling problems for this program instead of the one in Settings" and "Override high DPI scaling behavior" and set Scaling performed by "Application". This will solve the issue. (feedback welcome regarding this workaround)

You should try it when the game is in default mode (like stock game, then Platinum, no customization that you have tried and described above)
And if you make it working, share what helped and backup your profile or whole drive (i use RedoRescue software).

Hey, I played platinum a few years ago for quite some time but I wanted to come back to it and I now have a strange problem I don't recall having before... No matter what tdu I load up (Project Paradise, Test Drive Unlimited, Test Drive Unlimited (Old)) even while running as administrator, It always loads up my offline profiles. I can't find my online profiles with all my progress... I do NOT want to restart unless I have too so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check the troubleshooting guide here if you haven't already.

I would suggest starting over with a new install to rule out whatever extra changes you've made. Install TDU base game and drop Platinum on top of it, apply the 1.12 patch. Then go through the troubleshooting guide.

Also there were reports of some versions like TDU Gold causing issues.  It should be fine, but check archive.org or abandonware sites for other isos if necessary.

Apologies if this has already been asked, but what version of the game do I need to be able to play this mod?

Any version out of official DVD i guess. But as Iceman above mentioned, Gold may have issues.

can i run it with a cracked game or need the og one?

I doubt they would have modified other file than main .exe and if i remember correctly, Platinum pack has its own exe included so it would be replaced anyway? I know someone mentioned that no-cd crack .exe worked. By saying this i do not endorse using pirated SW.

Use the exe that comes with Platinum mod - use the '4gb patch' version to avoid crashing issues. You can't use the OG DVD exe because it used SecuROM DRM which is blocked in Windows 10 and above.

Hi,

This mod is awesome. Thanks for your work.

I don't see any issue while running the game on Linux with wine and Vulkan. Even the TDU servers (if exist) with the Paradise Project Launcher work.

But I have a suggestion : the roads signs with text (especially "STOP", "ONE WAY" and "EXIT ONLY") need to have a better resolution texture. Texts on them are too much blurry.

There are lots of graphics mods out there for that sort of thing. Maybe there will be something done about it, I don't know.

hey
i have problem with tdu platinium. it looks more or less like i have invisible cars in showrooms that i can't buy. I found information that the reason is that the game is above 90 fps. That's why I tried to set these 90 or even 60 fps with various programs but it did not work.
Vsync is on all the time and also does nothing. The best part is that I played this mod a year ago and I didn't have a single problem with fps. Is there any way to fix this?

I hope someone else help you better as i am probably wrong here. One of the reasons may be missing or damaged car files in Program FIles / ... / Euro / Bnk / Vehicules. I would try using original files, not applying any car pack or similar. Then try again. Then try Platinum patch files, Try again. Also i suggest to search the phrase i have quoted above (!nv!s!ble cars) in this thread (you are definitely not alone to have this issue). If you manage to make it working, please tell others how you did it.

unfortunately this method did not work 😞

 

Edit: I found out that it is possible to take such a car in the rental shop which ultimately causes the game to crash

In the main menu, the game says v0.03a or does it says 1.66a or 1.68b?

1.66a but I was able to solve the problem in a surprising way. Well, all you have to do is ... run the game by simply TDU and not TDU Paradise Launcher xD. So the topic is closed, but thank you very much for your willingness to help 😄

Hi TDU Platnium forms.
Before I start I wanna say big thanks for reviving this game from 2006, shows real effort for a mod that took years.
I have 2 questions: 1. Can I use an xbox steering wheel? 2: I can't get online, all it does is freeze up the game and have to restart my computer.

i think that You should describe this situation in greater detail, like on which screen what do you see exactly and if offline profile works OK. If offline profile plays ok and online says "connecting" kind of message. It may be the issue with the internet, firewall (removing TDU from it, or adding it manually, temp. disabling antivirus, firewall - i know it is bad idea under some conditions) or you may try to use different internet - a VPN. For example protonmail.com has free one. Make sure that you have followed paradise launcher read-me file exactly to create valid online profile. Please mention how the issue was fixed if you will find the fix.
